2019 Cape Town > Kasane

Moments of wild wonder

The Okavango Delta is a remote, water-locked wonderland. Here you’ll find African wildlife in enormous abundance. In this alternate dimension, human beings have no foothold, and their presence here can be just as surprising to the many creatures that call the delta home.
Many hundreds of bird species flock to these waters and thousands of animals are drawn to the banks daily. The Moremi Game Reserve occupies the east and central areas of the region. Here, dugout canoes are used to navigate past hippos, elephants and crocodiles. You’ll soon find yourself immersed in a different world entirely. Make the most of it, and capture those moments of wild wonder at their most authentic.
